Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Feed regularly during the growing season with a slow release fertilizer. Apply mulch to keep the root zone cool and moist during the hot summer months. Prune to shape in mid summer, just after flowering. Cease pruning by late summer to allow next year's flower buds to form. Prune out only the weak or winter-damaged stems in early spring.
